Stainless Steel Grit Now Available From Transmet
In 1979, a team of engineers at Battelle Memorial Institute incorporated Transmet Corporation to commercialize patented Rapid Solidification Technology (RST). This technology produces solid metal products directly from a molten state in a fraction of a second. In addition to the high-purity Aluminum Flake produced since 1979, Transmet has been producing Cast Aluminum Shot and Cast Zinc Shot blast media.
Today, Transmet Corporation (Columbus, Ohio) is the world’s largest supplier of rapidly solidified Aluminum and Zinc alloy particulates. In order to service a wider range of blasting applications, Transmet has expanded its product line of shot blasting materials to include Stainless Steel Grit.
The new Grit is the highly effective alternative to Aluminum Oxide, Glass Bead, and other mineral abrasives in air blast and some wheel blast applications. Its angular shape, high hardness, and high bulk density (particle mass) delivers more energy to the part being blasted. Stainless steel grit results in more efficient cleaning and shorter blast cycles. Resulting surface profile is consistent, bright, and without ferrous contamination.
Stainless Steel Grit is proven to be more durable and resistant to fracture than other abrasive. This durability advantage will be reflected in the overall cost of the shot blasting process.
